Judge says Lincoln Mall owner owes $100k more for repairs

Posted: Updated:
MARKHAM, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Cook County judge on Friday ordered the owner of Lincoln Mall in Matteson to pay the court-appointed mall receiver another $100,000 to continue to make safety repairs to the property.

Last month, Judge Thomas Condon appointed Collateral Trustee as the mall's receiver to take over day-to-day operations at the troubled property and to address safety issues that prompted the village to file a lawsuit against the mall owner, Lincoln Mall Holding LLC.

In its initial lawsuit, Matteson asked a judge to shut down the property and appoint a receiver to fix such issues as exposed wiring, a crumbling foundation and blocked fire exits, among others.

Collateral Trustee owner John Suzuki said in court Friday that he had already spent the $100,000 that Lincoln Mall Holding had wired to the village following a previous court order. He needed the extra money to install emergency panic bars on all the exit doors, and to draft architectural plans for the construction of a set of fire stairs and two new emergency exit doors.

Condon granted his request saying Suzuki had accomplished more in one month than the previous two owners.
